be appointed attorney general by president george w. bush. in february 2001, in his first joint address to congress, president george w. bush said that racial profiling is, quote, wrong, and we will end it in america. end of quote. we take the title of today's hearing from the promise president bush made that night 11 years ago. in june, 2001, our former colleague, senator russ fine fwoe gold of wisconsin, held the senate's second and most recent hearing on racial profiling. i was there. there was bipartisan agreement about the need to end racial profiling. then came 9/11. in the national trauma that followed, civil liberties came face to face with national security. arab americans, american muslims, south asian americans faced national origin and religious profiling. to take one example, the special registration program targeted arab and muslim visitors, requiring them to promptly register with the ins or face deportation. at the time, i called for the program to be terminated. there were serious doubts if it would help us in any way to combat terrorism. terrorism experts have since co
political disaster. without roberts, a george w. bush appointee himself, the landmark obama accomplishment would have been struck down by the court's conservatives. and the president's opponents would have been handed a battering ram for the coming campaign. any observer could see that a weight had been lifted off the president's shoulders. >> whatever the politics, today's decision was a victory for people all over this country whose lives will be more secure because of this law and the supreme court's decision to uphold it. >> what an unusual pairing. barack obama, the liberal president, progressive president, and chief justice john roberts. they will be joined together in history. >> yeah. and i think you couldn't see this coming. because if you go back to the oral argument, it sure did seem like a majority. court was not prepared to uphold the law. and now we know why. because a majority. court also said that the government's central theory, which you could do this under the commerce clause, was not constitutional. instead, it was the government's fallback that satched the day. and dur

in the george w. bush administration. cheney, rumsfeld and colin powell and richard r. medish who had risen with them in sight of the republican party. despite all the differences among the members of the previous administration, they shared some common traits and beliefs. all of them had backgrounds in the military or in the pentagon and this was true of the secretary of state who had been the chairman of that joint chiefs of staff. richard r. medish as it was of cheney and rumsfeld. it's rare to have an administration with the former secretary of defense. and they also shared some common beliefs. america was unquestionably a force for good in the world. a military power was of supreme importance and in fact the disagreements among them were halgand win force should be used for the united states should be saved for the big war were used for house it was in iraq. immediately after obama's election in 2008i decided i wanted to take a look at the democrats over the same time period. many of my books have covered the same time period from the 60's through the present day. and i kind of come ac
operative who worked in the george w. bush white house saying that rush limbaugh is a feared power broker throughout the republican party. mighty rush limbaugh was so upset of the fact of sandra speaking truth to power that he decided he was going to take her down. he claimed that her advocacy for contraception coverage made her a slut and a prostitute. he said she was having so much sex that she needs a whole lot of contraception and she wants other people to pay for it. think about that. mighty rush limbaugh doesn't seem to understand the birth control pill is not like viagra. you don't take a birth control pill just before having sex like, oh, never mind. sandra fluke was not cowed by limbaugh's relentless defamatory character assassination. in fact, just the opposite happened. women and men around the country were disgusted by limbaugh and in short order he lost nearly 100% of his national advertisers. so, please, all of you join me in honoring this amazing champion, this role model, now 2012 woman of courage.

. chief justice john roberts, who was appointed by president george w. bush to lead this court in a more conservative direction initially was poised to strike down the key part of the health care law. but then he changed his mind and the outcome of this entire case. after oral arguments in the landmark case, sources tell cbs news roberts agreed with the court's four conservative justices that the heart of the law, the individual mandate that requires all americans to buy health insurance, was unconstitutional. but as roberts set out to write the court's majority opinion-- according to two sources with specific knowledge of the deliberations-- his views began to change. he forged an alliance with the court's four liberal justices and crafted a decision upholding the law under congress's power to levy taxes. that argument had gotten little attention and was uniformly rejected in the lower court. roberts then withstood a month-long desperate campaign by the conservatives led by justice anthony kennedy to bring him back. but roberts did not budge. on the last day of the court's term, after r
added in my opening statement comments made by president george w. bush after 9/11 which i thought were solid statements of constitutional principle. particularly when it came to those of the muslim faith, that our war is not against this islamic religion, but against those who would corrupt it, distort it, and misuse it in the name of terrorism. and i thank you for your test knownmy. >> thank you, sir. >> congresswoman judy chu represents the 32nd district of california. since 2009. she was the first chinese-american woman ever elected to congress. she chairs the congressional asian-pacific american caucus. formally she served in the california state assembly. we're honored that you're here today. please proceed. >> thank you, senator. as chair of the congressional asian pacific american caucus, i'm grateful for the opportunity to speak here today about ending racial profiling in america. asian-americans and pacific islanders like other minority communities have felt the significant effect of racial profiling throughout american history. from the chinese exclusion act, to the japanese-
that has our country in a strangle hold. >> let me add a couple additional things. when george w. bush was president, he was going overseas on a trip somewhere i don't remember what about or where he was going. there's a column list who wrote a column about the president going overseas. what he said was that for the next period, however long it was, the president was going to step out of his role as head of government to be functioning instead in his other role as head of state. so i was teaching at the time. i asked my students what jumps out at you about that. i got the answers i might expect. if he's going to be functioning not wearing his one hat where he's head of government, but his other hat as head of state, he'll be talking to people about basing rights, flyover rights, trade agreements and so forth. and i said, no. that's not the answer. the president's not the head of government. we don't have a head of government in america. we have three separate independent equal branchs of government. in fact, most of the major powers of government whether it's going to war or raising ta

"i have gray hair," he added. "people are disappointed because they had a vision of change happening immediately and turns out it's hard." one of the callers recorded the conversation. >> john: we are hearing about travel arrangements for romney? >> he was slated to attend the summer olympics in london. we have confirmed that he plans to visit israel this summer for the sec

people in our country, as was the case under president george w. bush, that that did not create jobs, it just increased the deficit, took us to the brink of a recession, and that's not the way to go. but that's the same that the republicans are presenting now. the president is talking about growth. he's talking about fiscal responsibility. we need revenue. we need cuts. we need growth to create jobs. and i have every confidence that the president out there -- he already has made a tremendous difference. but you cannot assume that the public knows when there's this barrage of endless money. that's why i say money has to be taken out -- endless money making misrepresentations on the campaign trail. >> high drama this week with the contempt vote for the attorney general. you and others have walked out as this vote was taking place. >> yeah. >> you actually suggested there's some conspiracy among republicans because he's challenging some of the voting rights act laws around the country that they went after him on the contempt vote. what do you have as a fact? >> i don't say it's a conspi
but he's never going to make george w. bush's numbers among latinos. it's really doubtful whether he'll make john mccain's numbers among latinos and that's the really hard deficit for him to make up. same with young voters. it's not whether they show up or not. it's the margin of victory for obama. at the moment, it looks like it will be a blowout with young people and with latinos. i don't know what's going to change that. >> i'm just surprised how anemic the effort has been on the side of the romney campaign understanding how much ground they have to make up. but of course, there are months left until november. maybe there will be something huge we just don't know about. >>> after the break, we the people or me the people? kevin bleyer is out with a new book suggesting some dramatic rewrites to the u.s. constitution. he's coming up next on "now." you have to scrub it first. no you don't. yes, you do! don't! do! whoa, kitchen counselor here. see cascade complete pacs work like micro-scrubbing brushes to help power away tough foods even in corners and edges. hmm! cascade. love it or
